What does a Keto Diet look like?
People who are living a Ketogenic Lifestyle get most of their calories from fat, eating very low amounts carbohydrates and a moderate amounts of protein.
Contrary to popular belief... a Keto diet is not an all meat diet. It's a high fat diet.
Most people grew up believing that fats were bad. They believed if you ate fats you would get fat and have high cholesterol. This information is not correct.
FAT IS GOOD!
Every cell membrane in our body needs fat to function properly
Our brains are 60% fat
Almost every hormone comes from fat
Vitamins A, D, K, and E are fat soluble and require fat to be absorbed
Our nerves are insulated with fat
Fat is extremely satiating which means we eat less food and snack less
So what will I eat?
A typical day might look like this:
Breakfast: Bacon, eggs, cheese and avocado
Lunch: Cobb salad with blue cheese dressing
Dinner: Steak with a dollop of garlic butter and broccoli on the side.
Not a bad day if you ask me!
